Blackout or Blockheads?

I am now getting a message from MLB saying that "we are unable to successfully validate your information for purposes of checking your information against our blackout system." Meaning, no more baseball for you today, buddy, until we fix this.

It's not like I'm a new subscriber; I've had an MLB package for several years now. And it's not like they haven't had all spring to figure this out since I re-subscribed.

Of course, if MLB didn't have such archaic, ass-backwards, out-of-touch blackout rules, this wouldn't be a problem, anyway.

  • I live in Las Vegas like the poor sap in that Passan article, so MLBTV is fairly useless to me. I could understand the Angels and Dodgers since I do get their games on Fox Sports West and Prime Ticket. But the A's, Giants, Padres and D'backs have no reason to black me out. At least there are no restrictions on the fine AM-quality radio broadcasts!
